Meet Brighton Law Firm

Workforce Challenge

A small local law firm contacted the Adams County Workforce & Business Center, as the owner was looking to expand his business capacity and had a need for an office/legal assistant. The employer had posted a position on Connecting Colorado, but was not receiving applicants. They expressed their willingness to train the right person, but wanted to make sure the candidate was a good fit or their small firm.

Workforce Solution

Business Service Representatives from the workforce center met with the law firm to educate them about workforce center services available to employers. The owner of the company was not familiar with workforce beyond Connecting Colorado, and was very surprised at the breadth of services available at no cost. The law office was particularly interested in partnering with the workforce center for On the Job Training, in order to fill their open position and also ease the financial burden of training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Several resumes were sent to the employer both by Business Services Representatives and through the posting on Connecting Colorado. The employer identified a candidate who qualified as a dislocated worker, which allowed the employer to receive the maximum amount of funding available via a wage subsidy. The candidate was also the first Talent Pool member referred by workforce, and subsequently hired by an employer! This is a wonderful success for our Talent Pool program and for the employer!
